2nd Susa and Elam conference: History, Language, Religion and Culture

From 6 to 9 July 2015, an international conference took place at the Université catholique de Louvain (UCL). The conference was organised by Jan Tavernier, Elynn Gorris (Université catholique de Louvain) and Katrien De Graef (Universiteit Gent) had as main intention to bring together resarchers on Susa and Elam to discuss the ongoing research on this area in actual Southwest Iran.

Scholars from all over the world (Iran, Europe, USA, Australia, Japan) gathered to present their research in about 30 lectures. As such, one can believe that the conference was a success, both on the scientific and social level. Also various partners of the IAP project (Elynn Gorris, Jan Tavenier, Alexandre Tourovets, Rindert Janssens, Frieda Bogemans and Cecile Baeteman) gave a lecture.

The Proceedings will be published as a volume in the prestigious MDP series (Mémoire de la Délégation en perse).
